Duplications in Xp including the DSS dosage sensitive sex reversal region cause male to female sex reversal. We investigated two patients from families with Xp duplications. The first case was one of two sisters with karyotype 46,XY,der 22 ,t X;22 p The living sister was developmentally retarded, and showed multiple dysmorphic features and an acrocallosal syndrome. The second case was a boy with a maternally inherited direct duplication of Xp He had multiple abnormalities and micropenis, but otherwise unambiguous male genitalia.

Xp duplications and sex reversal

Xp-duplications with and without sex reversal

Metrics details. The X chromosome and X-linked variants have largely been ignored in genome-wide and candidate association studies of infectious diseases due to the complexity of statistical analysis of the X chromosome. This exclusion is significant, since the X chromosome contains a high density of immune-related genes and regulatory elements that are extensively involved in both the innate and adaptive immune responses. Many diseases present with a clear sex bias, and apart from the influence of sex hormones and socioeconomic and behavioural factors, the X chromosome, X-linked genes and X chromosome inactivation mechanisms contribute to this difference.

The X chromosome and sex-specific effects in infectious disease susceptibility

Male to female sex reversal has been observed in individuals with duplications of the short arm of the X chromosome. The study of Xp duplicated patients demonstrated that sex reversal results from the presence of two active copies of the DSS dosage sensitive sex reversal locus. A double dosage of DSS disrupts testis formation whereas its absence is compatible with a male phenotype, suggesting a role for DSS in ovarian development and as a link between ovary and testis formation.
Transmission distorters TDs are genetic elements that favor their own transmission to the detriments of others. Transmission distorters TDs are genetic elements that favor their own transmission and are passed on to the next generation with a frequency that departs from the classic Mendelian pattern of inheritance. The skewed transmission also called meiotic drive generally occurs during gametogenesis, as a consequence of meiosis and postmeiotic competition between haploid gametes. Occurrence of TDs on the sex chromosomes leads to a sex-ratio distortion in the progeny.
